Paradise!
« on: January 02, 2018, 08:04:32 PM »
Paradise has been an objective since I first saw Return of Tambelon as a child, and I recently got hold of her and I'm so happy! I've deflocked her, and now she looks amazing!

Yes, it is! It still had the original factory curl, but unfortunately I had to boil her head and the tail needed smoothing out so a sacrifice had to be made.

Great job. I had one deadlocked years ago but the head ended up being very discolored. So now I just have a fuzzy one and a Brazilian. One of my fav ponies! Wish a baby had been released for it.

I'd love a Brazilian Paradise, but the price tag is intimidating.

Baby Paradise would be so cute! With a little work, Baby Surprise could become one...

Deflocked Paradise has been one of my most wanted since I saw Paradise in a cartoon as a kid (having a cartoon as an ad for your toys really worked back then) but I settled for a flocked one, too afraid to deflock. How long did it take you, and how was her flock beforehand?
:biggrin: Please ask for G3 combs and accessories when trading/buying from me!  :lol:

 It took me roughly three days without working on her constantly and because I still needed to buy some supplies for her.

I used pure acetone for everywhere that wasn't her eyes, blush and symbols and acetone-free nail polish remover for her eyes, blush and symbols. The flocking on her body had weaker glue than that on her head, so I had to boil her head for a bit first. Once all the flocking was removed I took out her tail and left her to soak in a sugar soap bath for about five minutes, head and body, which got all the remaining glue off. I would recommend seeing if the flocking can be removed by hand/nail, then separating the head and body and removing the tail and boiling if not. Also I used about fifty or sixty cotton buds, I reckon, with some make up remover pads on the legs, and a hobby knife on a bit of very stubborn neck glue.

Be very careful on the eyes and blush regardless of the lack of acetone in nail polish remover. They can withstand some rubbing but not too much.

Also I'm in the UK so sugar soap is this:

Yes. Perfect <3. That is the true Paradise in my view. Hasbro UK took her from us, you know :( She was a prototype but then they pulled her before the Estate went on sale. That fact still traumatises me as she was a favourite from my childhood...

I like the fuzzy, but there's something special about her looking like yours. Great job and congrats. She's beautiful <3.
